Happy Chinese New Year!

Or Happy Lunar New Year, whatever you prefer.

It's the year of the Dragon - oh yay, that means I turn 48 this year. I am, of course, thrilled. This puts me that much closer to that coveted AARP membership.

I have to apologize for not visiting some of your blogs recently. Our wonderful satellite internet provider has determined that we're overusing bandwidth and has downgraded our internet speed to that comparable to dial-up. And by "wonderful" I mean some choice four-letter words that I can't write here since this blog is rated G.

In order to get our speed back, we have to cut our bandwidth use down for a month. Even if we didn't have to cut our bandwidth use down, it is next to impossible to load pretty much any blog using dial-up speed...especially the blogs that have BIG gorgeous photos (you know who you are). I'm only keeping up with my blog posts mostly by doing them whenever I get to go somewhere (like our public library) where I can get free Wi-Fi and scheduling them to post for future dates.

Some happy new year indeed.

On the bright side, hubby roasted a 5-spice duck for dinner and it was most excellent!

Will you do anything fun for the Lunar New Year? Did you even know it was the Lunar New Year?  ;)
